Founder Nick Kattis discusses how they streamlined their workflow with NewBlue Titler Live.
With the shifting global business landscape, Fellows Agency had to pivot to keep their clients’ businesses running smoothly through these times of change.
Fellows Agency produces dozens of live streams a month for discerning corporate, government, and sports clients—and that new business paradigm is not slowing down. Live streaming has become a core part of business for Fellows Agency—so much so that they are growing a live production division of the company.
A huge volume of live streams.
Fellows prides themselves in helping their clients tell stories and engage their audiences while keeping their brand identities consistent. With the influx of live content needed, founder Nick Kattis needed a more efficient workflow with high-end graphics organization.
During the discovery phase, Kattis found that the different packages of Titler Live Broadcast fit their budget. The flexible plans coupled with a powerful feature set helped them make the decision to invest in Titler Live from NewBlue.
“Titler Live Broadcast allows us to streamline our graphics and provide a richer, more engaging production for our discerning clients.”
Lots of moving parts.
Fellows Agency productions span from multi-day live productions and off-site brand activations to in-studio productions where organizing custom graphics and media clips gets very complex. Fellows helps clients enhance their production value to improve the engagement of their content by building custom built templates within Titler Live.
Creating and tweaking graphics happens a lot during Fellow’s multi-day live streams. Prior to implementing Titler Live, Fellows jumped from Adobe Photoshop, PowerPoint, or After Effects to import graphics—the process was too slow and inefficient. The flexibility of Titler Live Broadcast allows them to make changes within the Titler Live software—so they’re not spending time toggling back and forth between applications.
Before adding NewBlue’s Titler Live workflow, pre-production would take two days minimum. After using Titler Live’s templates and NDI workflow, Fellows Agency is seeing a time savings of days.
“Titler Live makes updates and graphic changes on the fly—it’s so easy and fast—you don’t even leave the application. The efficiency of creating graphics within the Titler Live application saves us thousands of dollars.”
With so many productions on deck, support is important. Kattis appreciates the one-on-one support of Titler Live Broadcast, “The customer service NewBlue brings is icing on the cake.”
Efficient NDI and graphics workflow.
Titler Live Broadcast’s NDI interface affords a convenient workflow and simple set up, which is especially beneficial when Fellows is producing remotely.
Fellows relies on Titler Live’s ability to create custom animations and complex graphics—without the headaches that can be involved, “Animation takes time to create, but the templates included with Titler Live create significant time savings,” Kattis explained.
“We keep pushing Titler Live and it always delivers the best production quality.”
Titler Live is Fellows Agency’s all-in-one graphics solution for formatting graphics, lower-thirds, and customizing branding for live productions. Kattis explained. “It’s hard to match the affordability, convenience, and efficiency of Titler Live.”
